Ángel Sala, director of the festival, brought happiness to all fans of the mythical Game of Thrones (GoT) series with a pleasant and unexpected surprise…. and that was Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, (interpreter of Jaime Lannister in the GoT series), that attended at the festival to witness the premiere of Jonas Alexander Arnby’s new movie, called “Suicide Tourist”, where the Lannister himself is among the main cast of actors.

This year, the festival surprised us with 2 great internationally Japanese films, by two great and renowned authors: “Weathering with you” by Makoto Shinkai, author of famous world-knewed films such as “5 centimeters per second” or “Your Name” (which premiered at the same festival last year), and “One Piece: Stampede”, for all the faithful followers of the popular manga / anime One Piece, by the mangaka Eiichiro Oda.

But let’s not forget the main course and origin of the festival: The Horror.

This genre never disappoints when it relates to Sitges, and just to start, this year brought to us the return of Rob Zombie, the former member of the metal band “White Zombie”, already known for bringing great films to the festival with his new movie called “3 from hell“. And this was only one of the various bombings of the theme that the festival brought us.
